Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
I no longer pay outrageous cable or satellite bills. I installed a rooftop antenna that, including amplifier, antenna, and mounting hardware, cost less than a once month subscription to my satellite provider. If you are dissatisfied with cable/satellite pricing, programs, and paying to be advertised to, then stop paying them!
No one wants to work on christmas eve because they got sick earlier in the year.
Yup, I'll be back at work on December 26th.
Company policy is that every hour out of the office that is not officially sick or vacation time must be made up by the end of the week. This results in me having to put in 11 hour days while still sick just to meet my weekly 40-hour requirement, saving the sick time for when my son needed surgery or my wife was admitted to the hospital for a week.
Sad that most of Slashdot is against it because of the colour of their ties.
Have you been reading the same comments that I have? As I'm not quite certain where you discovered that most everybody opposes it...
It's a neurohormone that you can take sublingually in pill form, and is available over-the-counter in the United States. Wikipedia has some decent information about how it works. (I get mine from Whole Foods -- about the only thing I'll buy there.)
What amazes me is the things which weren't predicted.
Look to the authors to find better predictions. Greg Bear predicted the future of the internet and media fairly well in Queen of Angels in 1990, and William Gibson actually invented the term "Cyberspace" (not to mention the entire cyberpunk genre) in 1984 with his novel Neuromancer.
Given sufficient time and mana, we could simulate a game of Magic within a game of Magic!
The poll did say "first", and Rogue does predate Castle by four years...
I'd been wondering if this even survived the end of the 5.25" floppy age. I'll have to give it a shot, now.
Once again, though, I am amused that the writer described the game as being a "rouge-like". Can't we spell it right after two decades, already?
It's an app from the ACLU which lets you one-touch photograph or video an event and upload it to a secure location. (There is also plenty of useful information and now-what guides for interacting with police, laywers, an arrest, etc.) A very useful app [that I did not write].
Spread the word. Get the eyes watching the watchers.
Simon Belmont and the extended Belmont clan. Far more vampire slaying action, much less angst.
